Update as of December 6, 2023
After evaluating the popup dog park at Sierra 2 over the 11-month trial period, staff determined that the available area is too small to meet City standards for a dog park and has become a significant maintenance burden during its implementation. The current temporary popup dog park, having provided a trial period to evaluate the opportunity to have a dog park at the Sierra 2 Park will be discontinued and removed.
In consideration of several criteria including community input, evaluation of temporary popup park, industry design standards, availability of space and research of other dog park programs, staff will bring a recommendation to the Sacramento City Council on December 12, 2023, to request the establishment and funding for a new capital improvement project. This process supports continued community engagement, and will involve formal outreach and public meetings before the Parks and Community Enrichment Commission and City Council.
